As we grow, we’re committed to constantly evaluating our beverage offerings and to improve them whenever we have the opportunity to bring them in line with Groundwork’s mission of providing our customers with natural, sustainable, and organic products. For the past year, our Research & Development Team has been focused on moving toward all-natural ingredients throughout our drink menu, creating beverages that perform up to our rigorous standards. We’re thrilled to introduce the two latest results of their efforts: The All-Natural Chai Latte and The All-Natural Mexican Mocha.
Our All-Natural Chai Latte not only has a more authentic flavor profile, it’s also vegan. Our new, all-natural recipe is made with Tipu’s Chai, a blend of real spices and organic Indian black tea that create an awesome balance of spiciness and depth. We’re excited about Tipu’s Chai because it’s made with only natural ingredients without the need for the artificial additives and flavorings that were an unfortunate part of our old chai recipe. Being a powder product, Tipu’s Chai is also more sustainable, since powders are more efficient to transport than traditional liquid chai concentrates. This reduces Tipu’s Chai’s carbon footprint and the amount of plastic packaging waste generated. Most importantly, Tipu’s Chai is certified organic, putting it right in line with the quality and integrity we are working toward here at Groundwork.
Our All-Natural Mexican Mocha is a more delicious version of an old favorite — a chili, cinnamon, chocolate-y treat that’s sure to warm the palates of our cocoa-loving customers. It’s also a more authentic version: We took the extra step of infusing the chipotle pepper directly into the filtered water in order to achieve a rich and round spiciness. And we didn’t stop there: Our new recipe uses vegan butter, which means our All-Natural Mexican Mocha sauce is naturally vegan too!
We hope that you love our new recipes as much as we do. They’re yet another example of the work we’re doing to achieve our mission here in Los Angeles.
